Two men believed to be attempting to burglarize a car from the parking structure at The Gores Group’s Wilshire Boulevard building was arrested late Thursday by Beverly Hills Police.
According to Lt. Lincoln Hoshino, the BHPD received a call around 4:45 p.m. Thursday about two men who appeared to be trying to gain entry to a white 2016 GMC Arcadia SUV in the parking structure, eventually activating the vehicle’s alarm.
Additional calls followed soon after, pegging the suspects as walking away, northbound on Whittier Drive.
BHPD officers hit the scene within two minutes and noticed the men discarding stolen property into nearby bushes.
The men, Rasheed Saleem Kees, 34, of Los Angeles and Christopher Richardson, 30 of Los Angeles, were taken into custody for auto burglary.
Further investigation revealed that the men had forced entry into the car by jamming the door locks open and had also gained entry to a 2016 Chrysler 300 parked nearby, by partially forcing the windows open.
